Membership Campaign Tip!
Thanks to Colorow Elementary PTA! We share the “Epic Ice Cream Challenge!”
Make the focus on male caregivers/dads enjoying time with their kids and focusing on a goal. After completing each activity station, the team would earn points that would get written on a point card.
– Organize 8 activity stations in the gymnasium – many sports or activity related like basketball take-a-shot, Football pass, Jump rope relay, etc. Add some other activities like “make a balloon animal” and a Laser Challenge game.
– Organize an awesome Banana Split bar in the cafeteria. Have tons of topping choices like candies, syrups, cereals, etc. Each topping cost points. After the team is finished in the gym, take the point cards in and “buy” toppings to make awesome banana split creations, and then eat them there together.
– Tell each male when he checks in to the event that he will earn 10 extra bonus points to buy more toppings for himself and the students with him for joining the PTA.
– If you are good at getting donations, you can do an event like this for free. If donations are not possible, budget approx. $1 per serving. Work with your PE teacher to get some ideas and borrow some equipment.
